Differences in the damage caused by glaze ice on codominant acer saccharum and fagus grandifolia

, : Differences in the damage caused by glaze ice on codominant acer saccharum and fagus grandifolia. Canadian Journal of Botany 65(6): 1157-1159

A severe glaze ice storm had greater destructive impact on Fagus grandifolia than on codominant Acer saccharum trees in a mature southern Quebec [Canada] forest. Both the numbers and total biomass of major branches lost by beech were significantly greater than by sugar maple compared with the contribution of each species to the canopy composition. This greater ice damage to beech suggests that reciprocal replacement processes involving beech and maple seedlings cannot completely account for the maintenance of beech-maple codominance in northern forests subject to relatively frequent ice storms. We hypothesize that the ability of beech to root sprout is important in compensating for its greater susceptibility to ice damage and contributes to the maintenance of beech-maple codominance in northern forest.
